Simformotion Spotlight – Pat West

Why did you choose to work at Simformotion?
I joined the Simformotion team in June as the Warehouse Manager. Simformotion’s values really attracted me to the position as well as the team atmosphere and the company’s motivation to grow. I’m excited about the opportunity to take on a new challenge in my life.

How do you support Simformotion customers?
One of my responsibilities is to lead the warehouse team in delivering the highest quality products in a timely manner. The team also provides support to our customers should they have any additional special needs or requests.

What are some of your goals?
Some of my goals include continuing to streamline our production process and improve our turnaround times, while at the same time, not compromising the quality of our products. For me personally, I want to continue to evolve with Simformotion as we grow as a company.

“If you work hard, constantly seek self-improvement, listen, and learn from others, you can personally achieve great things. I’ve also learned that a great team who works as a cohesive unit can accomplish so much more as a group than great individuals who work alone.”

 

Tell us about your professional experience.
I spent the last 18 years in the orthotics and prosthetics field as an inventory coordinator, project manager and fabricator of custom devices. After five years of serving in the United States Marine Corps as an Aviation Mechanic, I received an honorable discharge. And for the past 15 years, I’ve coached high school and middle school basketball, softball and many other youth sports.

What have your years of professional experience taught you?
If you work hard, constantly seek self-improvement, listen, and learn from others, you can personally achieve great things. I’ve also learned that a great team who works as a cohesive unit can accomplish so much more as a group than great individuals who work alone.

How do you measure your success?
In my coaching career, I measure success not so much by our wins or losses, but how well my team operates as a unit at the end of the season versus how they started the season. Additionally, I look at how they have developed and improved as individuals. I would say the same is true for me at Simformotion. I’ll measure my success by how well our warehouse team operates in getting the highest quality products out in the most efficient way while they learn, work and grow together.
